The purpose of this study is to ensure the quality of the COPD treatment in primary care by implementing planned follow-up visits, where the disease condition is evaluated and optimised in accordance with the national COPD recommendations. If relevant the general practitioner (GP) will refer patients to COPD rehabilitation conducted by relevant municipality rehabilitation teams. Secondarily the purpose is to improve collaboration and communication between the local hospital pulmonologist, GPs and the municipality rehabilitation team
